He Never Said "No" To Me Before.

I set #3 down on the floor and he toddled by the coffee table. He noticed the bottle of hot sauce on the table, picked it up and carried it over to me. I asked if he wanted it, and told him it was Spicy. I asked again if he wanted it while he was processing "Spicy" and the appearance of the bottle.

He shook his head and said, "No."

As I was writing this, I heard my Darling Wife say, "Do you want this?" and his response came again, "No." She laughed and called out to me that he had shaken his head 'no' again.

He sure learned that lesson.

The lesson, of course, is that when Mama says it's Hot and Spicy, but opens something interesting-looking and hands it to you anyhow when you insist, do NOT pour it into your mouth.
